Please feel free to take any photos that I attach and upload them to your family tree. You do not need to ask my permission or credit me for the photograph.|
I live in South Yorkshire in England and am willing to look for graves etc in the local area.
I am trying to make a full record of the cemeteries I live near and am using local history records to add in the details for headstones which I cannot read or are missing. I started this when tracing my own family tree and my aim is to help anyone tracing their family. I do not want to upset anyone, so if anyone wants me to remove or transfer memorials please let me know.
Tip (Copied from England Discussion Forum):
To do a search for cemetery or churchyard in a particular county go to cemetery search and begin with a full search for all in England. Find-A-Grave will say that there are too many records and that you should go back and refine the search so that it returns fewer results. Ignore this and in the address bar at the top of the screen, where the url reads:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=csr&CScn=&CScntry=5&CSst=0 replace the 0 at the end with one of the following codes. There may still be several pages of cemeteries in the list for the county, but it is easier to look through
4216 County Durham
4811 East Riding of Yorkshire
4217 East Sussex
4220 Greater London
5248 Greater Manchester
4226 Isle of Wight
4233 North Yorkshire
4240 South Yorkshire
4244 Tyne and Wear
5249 West Midlands
4247 West Sussex
4248 West Yorkshire

We are inviting organizations and individuals interested in preserving the legacy of those who served in WWII to participate in an international project to locate as many of their service photos as possible during the next 4 years so they can be part of a WWII 75th Anniversary Commemoration that will be taking place in 2020.

Find A Grave Memorial# 114503195, All Saints, Misterton
Firstly, thanks for taking photos at this churchyard. I believe this William Taylor to be my 5xgrandfather. Could you please send me the full transcript of this headstone so that I can follow up on the other names listed. I cannot get the photo clear enough to read the lower information.
Many thanks and regards

|Brian Turner||Edward TURNER (1896-1963)|
Great photos from St Mary's Riccall.
Edward TURNER is my 2nd cousin twice removed
You also have a photo of the grave of his daughter Doris BOTHAM (nee TURNER) (1928-1990) and his sister Eliza FENTON (nee TURNER)(1898-1983). Edward's parents Joseph TURNER (1862-1933) and Emily TURNER (nee PERRY) (1860-1930) also died in Riccall and may be buried there too but perhaps there was no headstone for them. If you come across their grave in the area it would great to see a photo of that too. Keep up the good work and many thanks.
Brian J Turner
I see you have also found the grave of another sister of Edward in All Saints, Barlby. Sarah Ann STEWART (nee TURNER) (1899-1951).
You have a few and I have a few. Now if we could find someone who has the rest! I'm in the USA and making the memorials in the right cemetery is a problem for me.
